Marc Demarco has often been called one of the most interesting and unique personalities in today’s music world, someone who doesn’t conform to the boundaries set by the music industry, but instead does whatever he feels like. Whether it is walking on hands on stage in the middle of a song or an extraordinary media announcement during an interview, the musician has always stayed true to himself and his listeners thus having a big crowd of fans.

Since 2012 the musician has in his account 3 critically acclaimed full-length studio albums and 2 mini-albums, which were recorded in Mac Demarco’s self invented jizz jazz style or in other words it combines psychedelic elements, lo-fi, indie music and pop-rock. Lyrics play an important role in Mac Demarco’s music – they are filled with artist’s unique sense of humor, often hiding reflections of serious issues in the author’s private life and the world in general.

Marc Demarco will attend Riga as part of his latest studio album’s This Old Dog world tour. Last year this record was mentioned in the prestigious Rough Trade and Noisey lists of the best albums of 2017, while the prominent music media Pitchfork acknowledged that this album is the best proof of the musician’s natural talent as he is able to maintain full control over even the tinniest of detail, while creating a sound that is incredibly light and seems to flow free.
